addiCraSyTrioThis is the latest way to knit socks...with flexible double-pointed needles!
ADDI's CraSyTrio set of double-pointed knitting needles have a short section of flexible cord in the middle of each one, allowing them to bend. Each needle also a standard tip at one end and a sharper lace point at the other, so you have the option of choosing which type of tip you prefer to knit with.
Available in sizes from 2mm to 5mm, please select the size you would like from the drop-down menu.
This 3-piece set of flexible sock knitting needles will allow you to knit pieces that vary in diameter and will accommodate small diameter pieces very easily. When knitting in the round, the stitches are distributed over two needles and the third needle is used for knitting - which means only two needle changes per row!
These were designed by ADDI, based on an idea by Sylvie Rasch, hence the name CraSyTrio.

Short row heels are a breeze on these, just split your stitches with half on each of 2 needles.
You can knit heel flaps by placing one third of the stitches on one needle and the rest on the other.
